FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question for us? Just ask!

Q, I am planning to re-roof my house using an MCCA approved material, and my contractor has obtained a permit from the City of Mill Creek. Am I required to obtain MCCA approval as well?

A. Yes!

Q. What happens if I do not get an MCCA permit?

A. MCCA could put a stop work order on your project that might significantly delay your contractor and the project. If the project is completed without a permit, you would be required to submit the application after-the-fact and correct any deficiencies, including removing any unapproved materials and/or work. Failure to correct the deficiencies could result in a fine and a lien being placed on your house.

Q. Do I need an MCCA permit to repaint my house if it will be the same color?

A. Yes. You may, however, perform maintenance painting on a portion your house using the same color(s) without submitting an application.

Q. Do I need MCCA approval to trim a tree in my yard?

A. You may perform minor trimming on any trees on your property without a permit. You must submit an application for any trimming that will affect the appearance of your tree(s).

Q. What happens if I cut a tree on my property without MCCA approval?

A. You could be fined $1,000, in addition to being required to replace the tree.

Q. I am replacing my deck because it is rotten. Do I need a MCCA permit?

A. Yes. Replacing a deck, fence, or other outside structure requires MCCA approval. Minor maintenance on an existing exterior structure does not.

Q. I want to remove a rhododendron in my yard that has grown too big. Do I need a MCCA approval?

A. No, removing and/or replacing a shrub does not require MCCA approval. Significant changes that affect the overall appearance of your landscaping does require submitting an ACC application, and ACC approval.

Q. Can I landscape into the common area if I’m willing to maintain it?

A. No, but you may apply for MCCA approval. The Board of Directors must approve any changes to MCCA common properties.

Q. Can I install a play structure in my yard for my kids?

A. You must submit an ACC application. Approval will depend upon the location, visibility from your neighbors’ property visibility from the street, noise potential, etc.

Q. Can I make changes to my project once I obtain MCCA approval?

A. You are required to obtain approval for any changes to your approved project. These would include changing the size, location of your structure, or the appearance of your structure. Failure to do so could result in costly modifications later.

Q. What if I want to use a material not on the MCCA approved list?

A. You may apply for approval to use a new material not currently approved by MCCA. You will most likely be required to submit samples with the application. Approval may take significantly longer if the Architectural Control Committee needs to look at installations in other areas the material has been used.

Announcements

Bear Sightings

We have had a number of bear sightings in the MCCA this summer. The Fish and Wildlife Department wants you to know that this is not uncommon for our area, bears do wander through from time to time. If you happen to see a bear while out and about DO NOT RUN. Bears look slow and lumbering as they walk along, but they can move very fast and will definitely catch you. Instead, make yourself as big and loud as possible by raising your arms and yelling. 99% of the time, this will scare off the bear. If making noise and waving your arms does not work, act aggressively and start throwing rocks, sticks, or whatever is in reach at the bear.

The bears are here looking for food. To keep bears away, make sure you are not leaving out things the bears see as an easy meal. A bear’s favorite foods in residential areas are bird feeders, hummingbird feeders, and animal feeders, garbage, compost, and fallen fruit from fruit trees.
